A reflection on the Gospel for the Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Decisions we make always require us to leave something behind in our life. If we decide to leave our country in search of a better life, or for political reasons, it is with great pain that we leave many people and things behind. Even a happy decision, such as getting married or forming a new family implies adapting to a new life, abandoning some habits, and giving up, in a way, our freedom to move about as we please. Living with another person and having children totally changes our life. We accept these changes because we see them as being good for us. But these decisions must be made after much preparation, reflections and formation. But when things are done without much thought or impulse, it could easily bring down everything else.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Noveno Domingo en el Tiempo Ordinario

Las decisiones que tomamos en la vida siempre conllevan dejar algo atrás. Si decidimos dejar nuestro país para buscar una vida mejor, o por razones politicas, dejamos muchas cosas atrás con mucho dolor. Incluso una decisión feliz, como casrse o formar una familia implica adaptaciones a una nueva vida, dejar algunas costumbres y renuciar en cierta medida a la libertad de movimientos. Vivir con una persona distinta y tener niños cambia totalmente la vida. Aceptamos estos cambios y renuncias porque las vemos como un bien para nosotros. Pero las decisiones siempre se deben tomar después de mucha preparación, reflexión y formación. Porque cuando se hacen las cosas sin pensar, por impulso, se puede derrumbar todo fácilmente.

The second collection is for church property maintenance.
As announced last Sunday, Daniela Arias, one-time Queen of the Parish Festival, has been chosen as a delegate World Youth Day Festival in Sydney, Australia from July 15-20. To help defray travel expenses, Daniela is selling books from Liguori catholic publication. You can help out Daniela by buying books from her after the masses. The books are on display at a table just in front of the parish hall.
Next Sunday’s second collection will be to support the mission activities of the Columbain fathers. A Columban missionary will preach at all the Sunday masses including the vigil masses on Saturday.
The demolition of the concrete stage has been successfully done. For the backbreaking job we thank all those who have volunteered their time, effort and tools: the Tongans, Latinos and Filipinos. Next phase will be the concreting and leveling of the excavated area and the cementing of the section near the rectory. Another on-going project is the painting and Improvement of the parish hall. This project is being undertaken by the Couples for Christ.
